An Introduction to Contemporary Art in Malaysia

Sorry we missed the boat on part I & II (see disclaimer to the right) but this will be the last one of the three part series of informal talks and discussions by Curator & Writer Beverly Yong, Director, Rogue Art introducing the background and practice of contemporary visual art in Malaysia which should be as informative and interesting as the other 2. Read arteri's (my favourite new blog) review on Part I here. Art newbies mark your calendars.

Part III: Breaking New Ground
Tuesday, 28 April, 6.30pm

For many younger artists, and for a new generation of viewers, contemporary experience is most clearly expressed in the language of the visual and other sensory media that surrounds us. At the same time, global developments in art and technology have opened up new expressive possibilities for local artists. Part III introduces some of the innovators working with 'alternative media', and the processes and ideas behind art works which involve installation, performance, found objects, text, sound, video, photography, digital technology and more. A related phenomenon is a rising interest in interactive public art, with artists and artist-groups exploring ways for art to involve the viewer and the community at large, finding support from public and private institutions.
